Five men were arrested and firearms recovered in raids linked to more than 50 burglaries where cars worth £750,000 were stolen. Police swooped at four addresses in Brinnington and a home in Reddish - making an arrest at each - early on Thursday morning. The raids follow six months of investigation into a huge increase in burglaries, largely in Stockport but also into Derbyshire.
Residents are celebrating after work finally began to demolish ‘eyesore’ derelict buildings blighted by anti-social behaviour. Elisabeth Mill and the Friedland Building in Stockport have stood derelict for more than 15 years, but are now set to be replaced with new homes. Vandals have struck numerous times at the Reddish trouble spot. Police were called around 120 times to the buildings in just two months in the summer of 2014 when anti-social behaviour was at its worst.
One of the busiest roads in central Stockport has been closed until further notice following a sewer collapse. United Utilities confirmed the fault on Greek Street on Friday afternoon following investigations into the road surface crumbling away. The area of road affected is adjacent to the Nelson pub and the road was immediately closed in both directions. Diversions are in place and repair work is expected to begin on Friday afternoon.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
